The WITSUP, women in triathlon, podcast is a lot more than just swim, bike and run. It's all about getting to know the person behind the triathlete. What makes them tick. Who or what inspires them. What has driven them to be the person and the athlete they are today.

So imagine yourself joining me and your favourite triathlete for a chat over a coffee, or a wine if you prefer, and plenty of laughs.

    Paula Findlay - Suddenly 30

    Paula Findlay - Suddenly 30

    You would never know it from this softly spoken and humble athlete, but Paula Findlay made a huge splash in triathlon at the age of 20 and had her country's hopes pinned to her back for the Olympic Games. But with all those hopes, comes all those pressures ...

    It's a decade later and Paula is suddenly 30. I noticed during our chat that she kept mentioning that she was now 30, and couldn't help but feel that this was a significant milestone for her. We discuss being all grown up, the roller coaster ride she's been on, what dog she wants to get, her strongest personality trait and what she's learnt about herself in the past decade.

    Witsup Podcast Linsey Corbin

    Witsup Podcast Linsey Corbin

    Linsey Corbin, The People's Champion! Well, that's what I've dubbed her, because, the people love her. It obviously helps having an insanely adorable dog as her side kick.

    I think the underlying theme for this episode is "own your story." Linsey has learnt a lot about herself, particularly over the past couple of years that has seen her evolve as not only an athlete, but a person. This chat was a fascinating insight into confidence, perception, evolving and being true to yourself. I didn't know the conversation would go this way, but I am thrilled that it did.

    Witsup Podcast Ruth Astle

    We catch up with VERY recently turned pro, Ruth Astle just days before her first race as a professional at Ironman Western Australia.

    Ruth didn't want to take her pro card until she won the overall age group race in Kona, and this year, she nailed it. We discuss the transition to pro racing, where her competitiveness comes from, how triathlon changed, or should we say helped mould her into the more confident person that she is today, how a broken collarbone didn't slow her down this year, and so much more. Good luck this weekend Ruth!

    Witsup Podcast Skye Moench

    Witsup Podcast Skye Moench

    Skye Moench has had an incredible past 18months, and after a win at the Ironman European Champs in Frankfurt in July, she looked set to have a great debut at the Ironman World Champs in Kona.

    However, an horrific bike accident, has left her sidelined (for now), and truth be told, lucky to be alive. She is however, on the mend, and while the accident was a big part of our chat, we spoke about many other things like, hands down, the most perfect way that she was proposed to, her career prior to becoming a professional triathlete, and how to pronounce her name.

    Witsup Experts - Amber Johnson, Strength and Conditioning

    Witsup Experts - Amber Johnson, Strength and Conditioning

    This is our very first Witsup Experts edition, and I couldn't think of anyone better to kick it off than Strength and Conditioning expert, Amber Johnson from First Wave Fitness.

    I ask her what her philosophies are with strength and conditioning in endurance sport and whether it should be a priority for triathletes.

    There are some great moments littered throughout our chat, and she explains why she lives by the Gray Cook quote, "first move well, then move often," and why she often asks herself when working with athletes, "where is the athlete leaking power?"

    There are plenty of take home messages (along with a few giggles) from our chat with this expert.

Authentic and laugh out loud

Of all that is wrong in the world, I love I can listen to this podcast that is guaranteed to make me smile, keep my interested and elevate the incredible stories of female athletes - they just need to be a bit more regular... sounds like triathletes periods

Love me a good podcast

Thoroughly enjoyable easy listening to more than just sport. Explores the back stories to amazing and dedicated athletes, and while not afraid to ask some of the trickier questions, it doesn’t take it too seriously.
